of other domestic issues. now we switch to domestic and foreign policy. ryan is a numbers guy. how do you think he'll match up to vice president biden when it comes to the economy first, foreign policy second? >> i think it will be an even match. biden was in the senate 36 years so he has a very good understanding of federal issues as well. but paul ryan jokes about how he's been reading federal budgets since he was 22 years old. so they both have a very long backlog of data they can use. i think they'll be evenly match. >> what's your word of caution for each with 30 days to go? >> don't get overconfident for both sides. >> that's good. all right. erin, always great to talk to you. heating up, getting really close. we'll talk to you again. >> sounds good. >> you don't want to miss the first vice presidential debate. i'll be sitting in front of the tv. joe biden squaring off against paul ryan and this this is the e to tune in live. that happens on october 11, 9:00 p.m. tune in a few minutes more. lots of commentary too right here on the "fox news channel." >> speaking of foreign affairs,

for the next debates? >> i think romney has to continue to hammer at these points. he gave a foreign policy speech, this monday, i am afraid it's a little bit late. when we were seized in the libya story and the american embassies were under attack from tunisia to indonesia, that was the time that he should have given it. now, he will be giving it. i think it's a great negatism but tell take the focus off the economy, which is where romney was scoring so heavily. he has to come back to the economy. stay on these points. he has to be a little bit wary because obama's going to come into the second debate, with low expectations and the second thing about this is, the second debate is going to be in a town hall that. places to obama's strengths. the relation with the audience. he has a way of connecting -- he did in the past. romney has trouble with that. if you remember the clinton/bush i debate, clinton won outright. so romney has to prepare for low expectations for obam awhich will help obama. he has to practice in a forum, in which he can relax with the audience. however, he has one great a
might see some foreign policy and libya is the clear vulnerability for the president. now, the administration did not protect our people and then tried to spin its way out of failure, so, i think could you see some of that, romney has a speech on monday on foreign policy and i think that ryan could follow-up on some of those themes. >> okay, jake? >> i absolutely agree. i think it's libya, we've got congressional hearings coming out next week, the governor has a speech at the virginia military institute on monday and i think there's going to be a lot of foreign policy and a lot of things that come out between now and the debate on libya and the coverup and what's been going on there. >> okay, alice? >> i agree. while the economy is the ryan's strength i think that foreign policy is going to take center space during the the speech on monday, but it's critical he's able to point out the fact that the obama administration believes that strength is a vulnerability as opposed to weakness. i think that he needs to point that out and that we can achieve peace through strength and

the commonwealth here. mitt romney has picked virginia as the place to lay out his foreign policy agenda. the governor's going to be speaking at the virginia pill tear institute in lexington tomorrow. larry, why is virginia so important this time around? >> well, last time virginia was the closest to president obama's national average. nationally, he got 52.9% of the vote. virginia, he got 52.6%. so virginia is increasingly seen as a fulcrum in the national election. doesn't have to turn out the same way this time, obviously, but virginia is a prize that both sides want, and there's a good reason. it's actually very, very close. much closer than some of the national polls have suggested. >> larry, how has the state changed politically and/or demographically over the past four years? >> well, you've added a percent minority to virginia's population. i would say probably white voters in virginia will constitute no more than 72% of the turnout. the rest will be minority. president obama gets 80% on average of all minorities put together whereas romney needs to cross, in this state certainly
